The Sexual Assault Resource Center is pleased to announce its first annual art exhibit for survivors, Metamorphosis. We have partnered with the Arts Council in College Station to display works of art that have been donated for survivors of sexual assault.
The art will be auctioned and the proceeds will be given to the Sexual Assault Resource Center's Counseling Department. Since 1983, the Counseling Department has offered free individual and group counseling for survivors and their families throughout the seven counties of the Brazos Valley. We are honored to provide a place of healing for survivors.
This event was created for the community to see the strength and talent of survivors. We often see the dark realities of sexual assault in the media, but survivors are incredible individuals that deserve to be admired for being courageous.

Taylor Bailey Douglass is an abstract expressionist painter and designer specializing in resin fine art and furniture, born in Houston, Texas. Creating spiritually and environmentally charged mixed media abstracts of calming cool colors, Douglass’s work explores introspection and the path to enlightenment through expression, encouraging the viewer to reflect and look within to be a positive force in the world. Douglass is inspired by elements, colors, and energies in the natural world and how they change the way we feel and react. Her hope is that her colorful work will transfer therapeutic frequencies, bringing awareness to the role of your inner being and human consciousness, as it pertains to living in harmony on earth with all living things.

Gretchen Warsen and her two younger brothers grew up in an old farm house at the end of a dirt road in Maine, where the constantly changing weather and raw landscape were perfect for observing and exploring. It was easy to be a creative kid in that environment, for all forms of artistic expression was encouraged by her family. Gretchen began her studies in music at Bates College, but transitioned her studies to the Arts Department at the Tyler School of Art in Rome. When her daughter was born, Gretchen became a full-time mother, and has since returned to painting after ten years. She now has a messy-but-active studio in the back room of her house in Westford, Massachusetts. Her understanding husband, two brilliant teen girls, nervous Bernese Mountain dog and two wild kittens do their best to "leave Mom alone in her studio or else she will be grumpy."
